Mauna Kea Beach Hotel in Island of Hawaii, Hawaii

There are many reasons Hawaii remains the ideal vacation destination for so many dreamers: from its incomparable beauty to the ever-present aloha spirit, Hawaii is a place to be experienced. Mauna Kea Beach Hotel sits on the Big Island's sandy Kohala Coast as if it was placed there by deities at the beginning of time, and not Lauraunce S. Rockefeller in 1965. Since then, Mauna Kea has undergone numerous renovations, always striving to remain contemporary and stylish, but never losing its understated elegance and distinctive island charm.

The moment you arrive at Mauna Kea you are welcomed with the spirit of lokomaika'i (sharing from kindness within). From the fresh flower lei greeting to the relaxed seated check-in, you feel as if your presence is valued and your comfort is a top priority. The accommodations are contemporary and chic, with simple adornments to complement the breathtaking views of the ocean, the island, and nearby golf course from your lanai, while lavish amenities such as high-definition flat screen televisions, iPod docking stations, and L'Occitane bath products provide a touch of luxury. Despite the romantic, comfortable ambiance created by the spacious guestrooms and suites, a trip to the Big Island would be incomplete without spending time on the beach. Enhanced beach services such as padded chaise lounges, cabanas, and opulently plush beach towels ensure a relaxing day in the sun for adults, while Keiki Club offers fun, safe activities for the little ones.

Pairing up with its kaikaina (younger sister) hotel, Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel, Mauna Kea offers guests exciting ways to fill the day, from shopping and water sports, to golf, tennis, and Hawaiian cultural experiences like lei making, music, and crafts. Make sure you head back to Mauna Kea as the sun sets, at night the beach truly comes alive! Mauna Kea's delectable eateries are a stimulating sensory experience: Copper Terrace sets the mood with torch-lighting, and serves delicious themed pupus each night, while Manta & Pavilion Wine Bar's exhibition kitchen demonstrates the true art of creating a culinary masterpiece. Casual dining at Hau Tree offers classic barbecue favorites, and once a week a traditional luau is held on the beach. The smells of imu-roasted kalua pig, island fish, and finger-licking poi tantalize your taste buds while the steel drums provide cool island melodies during dinner before a fun (and very entertaining) group hula. Hawaii remains one of the top sites for destination weddings, and if you set Mauna Kea as the backdrop for your special day, you will not be disappointed. Get picture perfect at the on-site salon, and let the hotel's gorgeous grounds set the tone for an unforgettable reception. At Mauna Kea Beach Hotel you are welcome to enjoy your ideal vacation experience, whatever it may be, because at Mauna Kea the most important guest is you.

We are local. We have stayed here a half a dozen times. We love the beach and the restaurants. Given we only live 20 minutes away, it is remarkable that we have stayed there so many times. IN our mind --Two days at Mauna Kea is better than a week somewhere else.

We had to go to bar to get a waitress to take our drink order at the beach bar. After going through that we got two daiquiris that were are sure consisted of Kool Aid and some cheap alcohol. All this for 16.33 per drink.

I have traveled quite a bit, been to many resorts and for my wife and I this may have been the best we have experienced! Hands down one of the most beautiful, phenomenal beach, beautiful surroundings, quiet, spacious, all levels of dining available. Did I mention the beach? Our room was incredible! Ocean front, great up to dare decor, really cool shower/tub combo with ocean view! Outstanding service and the pleasant fragrance of plumeria at almost every turn! I can't wait to go back!

The Mauna Kea is so full service, there is really no need to leave the resort. Yes, there are incredible volcanoes to visit and even some rain forests, but if you really need to relax, just grab a chaise on the sand and enjoy the best beach at any resort we've visited. The accommodations (we had an ocean view suite) were amazing; spotlessly clean with a huge terrace overlooking the water. Even our bathroom had a terrace. The extra money for these ocean front rooms are absolutely worth the price. We had several room service dinners on the terrace and with the ocean breezes and sunsets, it would be hard to picture a better place to have dinner. But there is actually a better place at the resort -- the Manta restaurant has a gigantic terrace that not only serves world-class food but has the best view of a sunset we've ever seen at a resort. It is also the ultimate place to have breakfast in the shade. Even on a very hot day it is cool and shaded on the terrace. Don't miss the actual manta rays that come out at night. There is a viewing spot where you can watch divers with underwater lights swimming with 12-foot-wide mantas; it was like water ballet. The service at the hotel is why we will be returning again and again. Each and every person who worked in the restaurant, the bar, or cleaned the rooms were friendly, helpful and kind. I thought I lost my eyeglasses one afternoon and a woman who worked near the pool chased me down and found me; she could not have been more helpful. The concierges were also great.

This is Paradise. The natural beauty and manmade beauty compliment each other. The hotel has a simple archetecture that blends so well with the environment. Rooms are spacious and use the colors of the beach. The rooms with the ocean view are worth the splurge. You can hear the waves at night and the songbirds in the morning. There is magnificent Native Hawaiian Art throughout the hotel and a tour of the art on Saturday. It is the best beach I have been too. The water is a perfect temperature and the waves gentle. The people that work here are friendly and proud of their island. There are activities each day. The food is also quite good with a nice selection.
